  1. B5 No start after intermittent unlocking problem

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi guys Car is a 1999 B5 Sedan 1.8T (built '98 if that makes a difference) In the past month, I've noticed I have to hit the unlock button a few times on my fob for the car to unlock (thought this was just the fob battery dying). A couple days ago I go to unlock the car, and my fob is dead. I...
  2. Key fob not unlocking car

    B5 Garage
    Hi, I am having an issue with 2 key fobs I purchased. I tried to set them with the 2 key procedure, no joy as the drivers door lock mechanism is having the solder joint issue. I read on how to do it with VCDS. Looked pretty straight forward to me. No luck at all. When I log into the module...
  3. Unlocking front door keeps popping the boot - ideas?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys. Just bought a 2004 1.9tdi Highline and brought her home last night. Everything seems fine other than when I unlock the car, the boot pops open. Does anyone know what could be causing this or where I should start to try and correct it? Originally I thought the key remote might be...
  4. Lug nut unlocking problem

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I was trying to change put my brake pads on my 2006 VW Passat Value Edition 6MT. From what I know so far, the front pads are very straight forward and like many other cars. I tried to undo the lug nuts on my wheels and have problems trying to unlock them. I tried using the tools in the trunk and...
  5. Key fob not unlocking all the doors all the time.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Today my key fob started not unlocking all the doors intermittantly. Sometimes it does them all. Sometimes it does all but the rear drivers side door. And sometimes all but both drivers side doors. Sometimes the drivers front door will look unlocked but be hard to open. Any ideas? Battery...
  6. Rear hatch not unlocking - B5.5

    B5 Garage
    Hi all! I am having a strange issue on a 2002 B5.5 wagon. The rear hatch will work fine with the key. At least I assume it does. With the key, you can open a locked hatch - it pops open and you can lift it. If you close it, you must use the key again to open it. It does not stay unlocked...
  7. Parasitic Drain and Relay for Remote Unlocking Motor Rear Lid

    B5 Garage
    My original symptom was that my car would be dead in the morning. I took it to Autozone, and they told me that the battery / alternator appeared fine, but the alternator was roughly half a volt low. Nothing too crazy. I take it to the stealership [I'm in the Navy, and short on time or space to...
  8. Drivers side door not unlocking :(

    B5 Garage
    I love this car but honestly it tries my patience at times. Just this weekend the drivers side door lock has stopped functioning. It will not unlock with either the remote or the key in the lock. When using the remote the little indicator pops up and down but remains locked. Any suggestions as...
  9. Unlocking door alarm issues

    B5 Garage
    To start, I have searched through several pages of the forum but can't find a definate/clear answer so I figured i'd ask it. My 2000 GLX v6 only has the valet key, in the last two days I have unlocked the car but the alarm (red flashing light) stays on and interior lights do not come on. If...
  10. Remotes - Working in vag com measurement, still not unlocking car

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys - one for the experts... I just bought this Passat and the remotes do not work. I tried to put new batteries in and reprogram them but still didn't work. I thought for sure there must be a measurement in vag com, checked and sure enough, the central convenience module can see which...
  11. Tailgate won't open with central locking

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi, I've tried to use the custom search facility, but I can't find anything that exactly matches my problem, so apologies if this has actually been covered but I couldn't see anything. When I use the key fob to unlock the boot, the doors all click but don't unlock, and the boot makes no sound...
  12. Key Remote and Doors not Locking or Unlocking!

    B5 Garage
    Well, about 3 weeks ago my car remote key decided to stop working. It was intermittent and then it finally just stopped working all together. I have another set of keys and tried them and that didn't work so I figure nothings wrong with the keys. I also just noticed a couple of days ago that the...
  13. Unlocking doors with the remote...What am I missing?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I must be missing something simple...My doors all lock and the horn chirps and lights blink, when I go to unlock them with the remote only the drivers door unlocks. I've hit it multiple times no luck. The doors all unlock with the key and windows go up and down. I've checked all fuses and all...
  14. Convenient window unlocking..

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I was wondering, in manual it states that my windows can be unlocked VIA holding button "unlock", how ever it doesnt work. I tried in car settings and convenience mode is on. Any ideas? (I have a 2006 Passat 3.6L)
  15. Rear door unlocking question

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I bought this 02 Passat last fall. I thought initially the rear doors would just open from the inside without having to unlock them like the front doors do. I had the battery disconnected while working on the car and now the rear doors have to be unlocked before they can be opened by a back seat...
  16. Key Fob unlocking problem

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Strange issue here. To lock the doors, I have to press the unlock button and then the lock button on the fob. Any suggestions? Unlocking is no problem.
  17. No Signal flash on locking but there is on unlocking.

    B5 Garage
    As per title, I noticed today that the signals no longer flash when I lock the car but they do when I un-lock it. All the doors are shutting, if I leave any one open the CL won`t do anything at all, so I assume the sensors or whatever are intact. I only noticed it today, I remember it working...
  18. Unlocking the car manually

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Was trying to find out if I can do this. I no that there is a cut key down the inside of the fobb but don't know how to open the car with it? Do I have to remove the cap of the door handle? I'm asking cause the battery keeps running flat. A fault I have found is due to the rcd510 headunit I put...
  19. Boot (Trunk) unlocking itself.

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    It’s happened a couple of times recently, I’ve come down in the morning to see the boot (trunk) of my B6 opened, the key fob hasn’t been touched accidentally or anything like that. This morning when it happened I closed the boot, but after a few seconds it popped open again. When I inspected...
